I am a mother of a beautiful 28 year woman, a fiance to an incredible man, and future stepmother and grandmother! I have always loved to cook and consider myself rather resourceful. I had to be, since I was a single mother for many years, so I learned alot along the way.
My favorite things to cook
I love using a pressure cooker. I grew up watching my mom use this wonderful tool, and I am surprised how many people don't know how. It really captures all the nutrients of food, and cuts cooking time by 2/3rds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I ALWAYS make Thanksgiving dinner. It is my favorite by far. It took me 25 years to perfect my White & Cornbread Sausage Stuffing!To die for, if I do say so myself.
My cooking triumphs
I practically can go to a pantry, find whatever, and make a meal out of it. I had a friend who told me that I could make soup out of one shrimp! :)
My cooking tragedies
My early years of cooking Thanksgiving... and a raw turkey...ugh!
